"Thought this was a lot worse"
“The golf course looks incredible considering the conditions and what’s happened in the last few days. I thought it would be much worse,” says Helgi Dan Steinsson, CEO of the Grindavík Golf Club, who had just returned from a field trip around the golf course in Grindavík when mbl.is contacted him.
“This fissure that has been created by the road by the field has grown since the first pictures I saw,” he says.
Half the women’s side gone
He says that half the women's track on the 13 th hole is gone and he reckons that it will all go.
“This fissure is lying toward the clubhouse and then takes a big turn through the new training ground I just built this summer and from there a bit upwards,” Steinsson says.
He tells mbl.is that inside the clubhouse there are broken pictures, broken glasses and broken plates, but that’s something that doesn’t matter in this context.
The golf club Grindavík is the owner of the golf course but the land is leased to the club by the state.
